Giving Tuesday 2022

Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving back, is November 29th.


The Goal:

Raise $10,000 to recruit, train, and support Hand in Paw volunteer Therapy Teams.


$11,971 / 10,000



At Hand in Paw, comfort has 4 legs, a wet nose, and a golden scarf!

Our mission to improve human health and well-being through Animal-Assisted Therapy would not be possible without volunteer Therapy Teams. These dedicated teams improve the lives of others by providing comfort and joy to people dealing with emotional and physical life challenges.

Visits from Hand in Paw Therapy Teams are in high demand, and there are multiple facilities currently on our wait list - We need your help to reach them all!


This Giving Tuesday, you can make a donation to help train new Therapy Teams and provide resources to current volunteers so they can visit more people in need.
